Harris warns that immigrants will be turned back at the US border. “Don’t come,” she said during a press conference with Guatemalan President Alejandro Giamatti. They discussed, among other things, the fight against illegal immigration from Central America to the United States and the fight against corruption.
Harris said the two agreed that “people don’t want to leave their homes.” The United States wants Guatemala, El Salvador, and Honduras to take more measures against corruption so that the living conditions of the population improve so that fewer people move to another country. Harris said people need to feel that help is on the way.
